Bite off a man's ear. Spit on a police officer. Go to jail.
That is what Clinton police say happened, resulting in a second-degree felony charge of mayhem being filed Wednesday in Farmington's 2nd District Court against a 31-year-old Clinton man.
The man was arrested early Saturday morning after an officer was dispatched to a Maverik station at 1036 W. 1800 North. The officer found two men fighting, and during the scuffle the suspect allegedly bit off a 2-inch chunk of the other man's ear.
